    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a very fun extra curricular that helps improve writing skills and learn how to work in teams. The editor positions teach leadership and time management.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new perspective on how to interview and interact with people. I learned through interviews that the connotation of words in sentences can completely change the tone and outcome of a question. I learned better vocabulary words and strategy on how to plan and organize many different types of articles and that traveled with me to regular english. Once I was given the News Editor positon I was put under a pressure that let me grow. I became better at sitting down with no distractions and finishing a task. I began to understand time management and could plan accordingly what I needed to do when to get my work done on time. With the spacing of the page I began to get a strategic eye for where things fit and how to use computer applications to make a presentable and appealing lay out. My patience was extremely benefited as I dealt with and resolved delays or problems in stories in able to get out the final piece on time. I began to perfect and require myself to make the paper not only done, but outstanding in every visual and quality aspect which followed me to other projects and even real life goals.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure that you have a lot of free time and don't mind giving up that free time. Be prepared to make a whole new set of friends and to compromise ideas for the overall good. Learn to love staying after school for long hours to work and have a positive outlook.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class isn't really like a class, it's more of a small club. It's even more like a workplace, but it's a lot of fun. We staffers bond as a family and we always have the best of times no matter what happens. We work hard and we play harder, and we make a newspaper that's beneficial to our school and our community. I haven taken this course every year of high school, and I'm still in love with it.

    Course highlights:

    I want to major in journalism, and so taking this course has helped me learn so many things. Most significantly, I worked out most of my errors as a journalist and as an editor, making me a college-ready reporter. I learned new ways of writing and communication, all while having the freedom to do mostly what I want to do. Overall I just learned to be a better person and a better worker.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There's no studying involved, but you really need to make sure to be on top of your stories and your pages and such. If you fall behind, so does the rest of the paper. It's a lot of responsibility, but if you're punctual you'll be just fine. Remember to have fun!
